Today we're excited to share their mehndi ceremony and their wedding reception. Because we had just so many beautiful photos, we needed another feature to share these images!

The Mehndi Celebration started off with live Hawaiian entertainment with hula and hula lesson for group. Afterwards, there was the mehndi ceremony - where our bride made her entrance through the sunrise pool area of the Modern Hotel.

After Amy's entrance there was the chooda ceremony followed by the chunni chandian (

where the bride-to-be is given jewelry from future in-laws and a red chunni from her sister-in-law.)
